Black Lives Matter

Black Lives Matter

We welcome June with optimism and hope that we can all do better to acknowledge, amplify and support our black community. Everyone at the workroom strongly believes that Black Lives Matter. We know we can do more to be anti-racist and are committed to educating ourselves on how to be better allies. In addition to learning and signing petitions, we have donated $100 to each the following seven organizations or funds this week. We will also be setting up monthly contributions going forward to maintain our financial commitment for the long term. We encourage you to consider what you are able to contribute whether it is monetary, your voice or your energy. The work to be done here is overwhelming but essential.

We are thrilled to bring in Fat Quarterly Quilt Kits - a collaboration between quilt designer Andrea Tsang Jackson of 3rd Story Workshop and textile designer Alissa Kloet of Keephouse Studio.

New! Liberty of London Winterbourne

The new Liberty of London Winterbourne collection is a botanical explosion of classic floral prints in that Liberty style that we all love so much. There are thirty one prints in the whole collection with limited half metre & fat quarter bundles available. We've also done a few smaller sets based on the three colourways - Cloud, Berry and Spruce. This collection is printed on Lasenby quilting cotton weight.

Former team member Lindsay Stead recently launched a puzzle company called Four Point Puzzles. If you haven't seen them, they are really incredible. We are so thrilled to bring in her newest puzzle of Maura Grace Ambrose's hand dyed, hand pieced New York Quilt. This beautiful puzzle is the perfect stay at home activity.
Shipping Updates

Shipping Updates

We are working day and night (literally) catching up on your orders and we can't thank you enough for keeping us busy here in the shop. Shipping times are still MUCH slower than normal. We appreciate how excited you are to receive your order, please know it is in line with all the other orders and that you will receive a notification as soon as the package is heading out the door. There is nothing we can do to make this process go any quicker as much as we wish we could. We think we are doing pretty great considering the physical, staff and safety constraints we are under as a very small team.
New! Jetty Fabric

New! Jetty Fabric

Jetty by Carolyn Friedlander is a welcome distraction right now. We love Carolyn's approach to fabric design and find it so easy to incorporate her fabric into all our projects. Her collections are always a welcome addition to our wall of fabric, as they stand apart from everything else, yet go with so much. Take a close look, there are a couple beautiful prints that change from selvedge to selvedge that will make for some fun pattern play on your garment, quilts and bag projects.
Thank You!

Thank You!

It's hard to believe that it's just been a month since we launched our new online shop. Thankfully, it was just in the nick of time, so that we could continue to serve you during these challenging changes. We've received almost 600 orders since the March 10th launch and we're doing our best to keep up at a good pace, while working solo in the shop. Thank you for your amazing support. It brings us a lot of joy to get these supplies to you so you can continue crafting, now more than ever.

Merchant & Mills Wobble Gauze

Merchant & Mills Wobble Gauze

We've got brand new Merchant & Mills fabric to share with you. We are happy to report that this fabric safely arrived to the shop this week and is now available for ordering. If you love the Cotton Jacquards, there are four new colours available in a new square design. The new Wobble Gauze is also really special. This fabric is made up of two gauzey cotton fabrics – there is no batting in the middle of this cloth, the inside is made up of a series of thicker yarns which gives it the quilted feel. Please note this range is more gauzey than the jacquard cottons. If you're looking for cozy, these fabrics should do the trick.
the workroom loves you

the workroom loves you

There are just two things we know for sure right now. the workroom loves you and we love what we do. We are slowly establishing a new rhythm and routine that now includes single person shifts in the shop, so we can continue to social distance while keeping your orders moving. Shipping & Contactless Curbside Pick Ups will resume April 3rd. Please continue to check the website for our ever changing updates.

Orders are shipping out in sequence, so the sooner you place your order the sooner it will be ready to ship/for pick up. Timelines are considerably slower as we catch up, but we hope to get things moving more quickly very soon. Please plan ahead for your pick up orders as there may be 30+ orders in line ahead of you and there is just one person working.

Choose one of these items and leave us a detailed note on what to match to!
